This seems like a well documented technique, with help all over the Web, but I'm sure missing something.

I'm trying to protect a directory called pi.

I've used htpasswd Generator » Joe's Web Tools to generate an encrypted password from user password "pilBB" and put the .htpasswd file in root; the file simply says:

pileadership:$apr1$nmsi4jlc$gVIkQ43KtxatMi5rHrtSB/

In the pi directory is my .htaccess file, which says:

# begin password routine
AuthUserFile /.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName "Please Enter Password"
AuthType Basic
Require user pileadership

The pop-up appears as I would expect, but any PW returns a server error.
Is my path to the password file correct. Have I generated the encrypted PW correctly? Something else wrong?
